Gimp 2.8.2 freeze or/and crash after exporting picture
Last modified: 2013-08-01 01:50:42 EDT
Description of problem:
Exporting a picture just after is was loaded from gimp 2.8.2 or by linked application on file, make gimp freeze and crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always but see additional info
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Gimp 2.8.2
2.Load a picture
Freeze and crash gimp 2.8.2
However if the file is present, replace the file during exporting make gimp running well without any freeze or crash.

strace -o gimp-trace.txt gimp "alpha.JPG"
This bug has been plaguing me since F17 was released, and is still present with gimp-2.8.2-1.fc17.x86_64
How to reproduce:
1) nuke the ~/.gimp-2.8 so we're starting fresh
2) start gimp
3) file > new
4) ctrl-shift-N to export a PNG, and give it a unique filename (overwr
5) repeat 4 until you crash.
The crash happens almost every time for me, but not always.
I can't reproduce this, neither with loading an existing image, nor with a new one. Can any of you run this under a debugger after installing the necessary debuginfo packages ("debuginfo-install gimp") and generate a backtrace to attach here? Thanks.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
